June 06, 1943 - March 23, 2015
Romero, Marguerite, born June 6, 1943, passed away on March 23, 2015. She was 71 years young.
Adored by many, Maggie was a widow (predeceased by her Viejo, Rene), mother, mother-in-law, nana, sister, sister-in-law, tia, prima, comadre, nina and friend. Our Mom never wanted to burden anyone, always offered to help whenever she could with whatever she could and loved with all of her heart. She treasured her children and their spouses, but spending time with her grandchildren made her the happiest. She spoiled her grandchildren with hugs, kisses and food. Whenever she knew her grandchildren were coming to visit, she would stock her kitchen with all of their favorites.
She was an avid reader of murder mystery books and she spent many hours reading. She enjoyed a glass of red wine and stimulating conversation. She also enjoyed a light beer and lots of laughter. She had expressive eyes and she was a great hugger. If you ever visited her home or you were lucky enough to receive one, you will also remember her for her handmade decoupages.
Survived by her children and their families: Rene (son), Donna, Christopher, Oscar (son), Lisa, David, Grayson, Celena (daughter), Clemente Sr., Clemente Jr., Vicente, Alex (son), Nichole and Cannon. Predeceased by Francisco (father), Josephine (mother), Raymond (brother), Teresa (sister) and Florentina (sister). Survived by her siblings and their families: Richard (brother), Frank (brother), Norma (sister) and Nancy (sister).
Maggie will be missed by everyone who knew her including countless family and friends.
We love you Mom! You will forever be in our hearts.

Oh Comrade, The memories are going round and round in my head like an old super 8 movie film. From those warm welcoming, or when badly needed, comforting hugs, to those expressive brown eyes, that could penetrate right through you, if you got the look, you clammed right up. You were so much more than just a friend, you were there for the good times and the bad times. I remember so many times when you would just show up on my door steps, knowing I needed that extra long hug, and crying with me, (along with C.V.) You would tell me what I NEEDED to hear, not what I wanted to hear. Always upfront. Then there were the fun times, so very many over the years. Comrade you will be missed by so very many. what I wouldn’t give to feel just one more of your hugs. We love you, not goodbye, but till we meet again. Love, The Iverson Bunch

My dear friend Maggie, my confidant and although not through blood my sister. We have shared good time, bad times, tears and laughter. Shared the joy and heartbreak of raising our kids. My life has been blessed with you in it. I will miss you terribly but you will always be in my heart and thoughts. You are with your Viejo now and I can imagine it is a wonderful reunion.
Love you, your dear friend Clarissa

Oh how I miss you! It’s been four months now and I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that you are gone. Forever. I miss hearing your voice, the “annoying” sounds you’d make as I drove (badly) and your giving me directions on how to get someplace (even though I grew up right in the area).
I had envisioned that we would be spending the summer together with the boys. We would’ve gone to Tucson to see Uncle Johnny (who is feeling better by the way) and maybe we could’ve talked you into going swimming a few times (since we’d bought you that pretty swimsuit last summer). We would’ve gone over to Uncle Joe’s house and he’d have made you that green vegetable dish that you liked (but no one else did). You would’ve spent the night at our house and we would’ve played Sorry or Monopoly (or both). I’d go get us some fried zucchini or your favorite onion rings and a pastrami (for us to share). Remember that’s what we brought you on Valentine’s Day? You were our Valentine :heart:.
You were always there for us in so many ways. I’m sorry that I couldn’t be there for you when you needed me. I know that there probably wouldn’t have been much I could’ve done other than hold you in my arms. I would’ve whispered I love you and kissed your forehead. Besitos mommy! :lips:
Con mucho carino,
Tu mijita Celena
